Public Employment Law Update

The Public Employment Law Update on Tuesday, July 21, 2020, from 1 - 5 pm and on Wednesday, July 22, 2020, from 9 am - 1 pm. This will be a live video program accessible through the Zoom streaming platform.

The course fee is $285 per site. If your jurisdiction or department is working remotely, you may share the link among others working for the same organization.

This course provides an in-depth analysis of current issues in public employment law and an overview of the previous year's developments. The Public Employment Law Update is open to employees of North Carolina state and local governments and affiliated organizations who have responsibilities for human resource functions, and to attorneys in private practice who represent public sector clients in employment matters. This program assumes that participants have a good working knowledge of the principles of public employment law. It is not an introduction to public employment law. 

The Agenda may be found under the Materials tab.
